I am Disgusted

Black Friday madness
A man was trampled to death
I am disgusted

So, a man is trampled to death at a Wal-Mart by a herd of greedy shoppers rampaging to get in the front door. The poor guy was working there and trying to open the doors to let the mob in. They push him down - I heard they even knocked down the glass doors on top of him - and trampled over him. He died. It's disgusting. A human life is worth more than any freaking item contained in that store - and by accounts I heard on the news, nobody stopped to help him. I am sickened by this.

Cold Dog

Shivering . . . shaking . . .
Poor, little doggy wakes me.
He is so very cold.

Big E is very cold lately. It has been below normal down here in Florida, but we haven't turned on the heat at night. So, Big E is cold. I bought him a couple of doggy shirts to wear - cheaper than a higher electric bill!

Should I Call in Sick?

Monday morning blahs . . .
Don't want to get out of bed.
Should I call in sick?

I didn't call in sick . . . but it was tempting!

Faceless History

A long time ago
I was born only to die
And be forgotten

I was just thinking about history and the random people in it whom you will never hear about. Only the famous stand outs make it into the text books. Yet without those faceless peeps, would these stand outs even exist?

Global Warming, Huh?

Global warming, huh?
If the planet is so hot,
Why's it so cold now?

I live in Central Florida, and it's freaking freezing this week. It is below normal for this time of year, and there just happens to be a global warming conference in our area. Ironic timing, huh?

Bob Dylan

Lyricist . . . poet . . .
A jingle, jangle genius.
A folk rock hero.

I was listening to Mr. Tambourine Man today by Bob Dylan. That dude has a way with words. Even if you aren't a fan of his voice, you have to admire his ability to craft a memorable, beautiful lyric.

Evil Alarm Clock

Evil alarm clock:
"Screech! Screech! Screech! Screech!" taunting me.
Clock, I hate you so.

Chilly, morning air . . .
Let's crawl back under covers
And watch some TV.

Stressed Out

I am so stressed out
One more thing to do today
And I'm gonna scream

Bird without a song
Day without the sunshine's warmth
Life without friendship

Aren't friends wonderful to have in your life?

Thoughts From My Father on Veteran's Day

You may not know this
The hardest part of war was
Leaving you behind

I gave my dad a Veteran's Day card to thank him for his service. He was drafted and had to go to Vietnam while was still quite young . . . barely a few years old, I guess. He shared the above thoughts with me. It twisted me up a bit inside. I am glad he came back - I couldn't imagine growing up without him (or my sisters, who would not exist if he had not come back!).

Cheetah Behind Bars

A chimpanzee dreams
His movie-star days long gone
Cheetah behind bars

One of the original Cheetah's from the 1930s Tarzan flicks with Johnny Weismuller is still alive and well (I guess) at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor, Florida. While I do believe he is well cared for and that the sanctuary does do noble work, I still feel sorry for the dude. He looked so lonely. I guess you can accuse me of anthropomorphosizing him, but I think chimps do share a lot of our emotions. Maybe on a more primitive level, but they still feel and socialize.

If you would like to donate to the sanctuary to help pay for Cheetah's care, please visit
